Susie Geiger, a spokeswoman for Oxy, said the company filed the lawsuit because it was concerned about being involved early in the process with the developer.Oxy
was never notified about requests to rezone the land, she
said.As a result, it couldn't provide information on the amount of reserves underground for the environmental review process.Information in the city's environmental impact report stated there was an "insignificant" amount of oil in the ground, which later turned out to be untrue, Geiger
"We had not been notified that this was going on so we were left out at the beginning of the process," Geiger
said, considering where drilling islands will go at the tract map stage is often too late.
